July 9 – July 10, 2014

Today’s Good News
No matter what job you’re in, good teamwork goes a long way in making everyone successful and meeting the end goals. Policing is no different. Case in point: Thanks to the speedy response, thorough investigation and good knowledge of individuals in their area, First Precinct officers were recently able to make two quick arrests after an armed carjacking.

Officer Keith Mansfield was the first officer on scene and after interviewing the victims, he broadcast the suspects’ descriptions and last known direction of travel. Keen-eyed Officer Matthew Robinson located the victim’s vehicle and the two suspects in it. They took off running and though Officer Robinson lost sight of them, Officer Joachin Okonkwo spotted them and arrested one of the men. With the assistance of Sergeant Kenneth Peterson and Major Crimes Detective Jay Brissette, they were able to identify the second suspect, who Officer Alexander Laury found and arrested a few days later. After further investigation, both men were charged with armed robbery. Good teamwork officers!
